ATTAINING A GREEN PROTECTIVE GROWTH ON VERGES AND SLOPES ALONG MOTORWAYS AND ROADS

ERZIELUNG EINES GRUENEN KUEMMERWUCHSES AUF BANKETTEN UND BOESCHUNGEN ENTLANG VON AUTOBAHNEN UND STRASSEN

THE AIM OF THE STUDY IS TO ATTAIN A GREEN PROTECTIVE GROWTH WHICH IS AS LOW AS POSSIBLE ALONG VERGES AND SLOPES. AS REASONABLY QUICK GROWTH AND SPREADING OF THE PLANTS IS REQUIRED, CONTROL IS TO BE BY THE USE OF HERBICIDES AND COMBINATIONS OF THESE. A SURVEY IS TO BE MADE OF INDIVIDUAL PLANT SPECIES ALONG ROADS AND MOTORWAYS, AND THE EFFECTIVENESS OF VARIOUS HERBICIDES IS TO BE TESTED IN THE LABORATORY WITH REFERENCE TO TIME OF SOWING OF THE PLANT, TIME OF APPLICATION OF THE WEEDKILLER AND EFFECTS ON CULTIVATED PLANTS.
